  6. 6. AS THE TABLE TURNS Luke 16:19-31
  7. 7. Luke 16:19-31 (NLT)Parable of the Rich Man and Lazarus 19 Jesus said, “There was a certain rich manwho was splendidly clothed in purple and finelinen and who lived each day in luxury. 20 At hisgate lay a poor man named Lazarus who wascovered with sores. 21 As Lazarus lay therelonging for scraps from the rich man’s table, thedogs would come and lick his open sores.
  8. 8. Luke 16:19-31 (NLT)22 “Finally, the poor man died and was carriedby the angels to be with Abraham. The rich manalso died and was buried, 23 and his soul wentto the place of the dead. There, in torment, hesaw Abraham in the far distance with Lazarus athis side.
  9. 9. Luke 16:19-31 (NLT) 24 “The rich man shouted, ‘Father Abraham,have some pity! Send Lazarus over here to dipthe tip of his finger in water and cool mytongue. I am in anguish in these flames.’
  10. 10. Luke 16:19-31 (NLT) 25 “But Abraham said to him, ‘Son, rememberthat during your lifetime you had everythingyou wanted, and Lazarus had nothing. So nowhe is here being comforted, and you are inanguish. 26 And besides, there is a great chasmseparating us. No one can cross over to youfrom here, and no one can cross over to us fromthere.’
  11. 11. Luke 16:19-31 (NLT) 27 “Then the rich man said, ‘Please, FatherAbraham, at least send him to my father’shome. 28 For I have five brothers, and I wanthim to warn them so they don’t end up in thisplace of torment.’ 29 “But Abraham said, ‘Moses and theprophets have warned them. Your brothers canread what they wrote.’
  12. 12. Luke 16:19-31 (NLT) 30 “The rich man replied, ‘No, FatherAbraham! But if someone is sent to them fromthe dead, then they will repent of their sins andturn to God.’ 31 “But Abraham said, ‘If they won’t listen toMoses and the prophets, they won’t listen evenif someone rises from the dead.’”
  13. 13.  Not so fast, friend…good health and a fat wallet don’t mean that God is happy with you.TAKE HOME  God’s vision of wealth and well-being is 180 degrees from that of the World.  Home many times do I need to hear it…what matters is relationships and generous love.  Jesus’ was a master of ‘turning the tables’…where am I seated?
  14. 14. Jewish Presumptions in Jesus’ Day1. Rich = Blessed (some televangelists teach this still)2. Beggars = Unblessed, unclean (think: lepers)3. Related to Father Abraham = Chosen/Saved (Jesus: “Not all who say ‘Lord’ will enter in)4. Only Jews went to Heaven5. Charity was optional, not a way of life. Jesus’ story is the total reverse of all this! Note: Like the Rich Man, we too, may be surprised who is in heaven and who isn’t!
  15. 15. What An Amazing Story! Jesus Plays ‘Upset The Fruit-Basket’ With Our Minds. Perhaps unconsciously, we may make a connection between wealth and being deserving and good person. Like the people in another parable, we may ask: Who is responsible for this man’s illness…himself or his parents. Sick=Sin We pity the man whose sores are licked by dogs. But who is truly the pitiful one?
  16. 16. Jesus Tips Everything On End! The rich guy goes unnamed. But the ‘low rung’ fellow has a name…Lazarus. Lazarus ends up in Abraham’s bosom. The fat cat is in hell. Mr. Rich can see the Lazarus next to Abraham. Lazarus has a room with no view…of hell. All those sumptuous meals (or no meals) were absolutely no index of their standing with God. Jesus so often turned the tables: Woman at the well, ‘Good’ Samaritan, Others?
  17. 17. The ‘Hand Me Another Morsel, Servant’ Man Doesn’t Have A Prayer It is too late for ordering from God’s menu …not even a drop of water, please? He didn’t have a crumb to give Lazarus Now he’s begging for Lazarus for a crumb of water. Abraham: Sorry, but the barrier between you two is now fixed…there is no crossing over. Do you hear any mercy or sympathy in Father Abraham’s voice.
  18. 18. Please Send Lazarus On A Mission To My Unbelieving Family! They have those to warn them…as you did. Do you really think they’d listen to a Dead Man Walking? There is only One who has returned from the dead. Do people listen to Him?
  19. 19. God Scrambles OurImages, Charts, FormulasAnd Score Cards  Faith and works combine in the Good Life.  A stuffed closet, slick car and three tasty squares a day…absolutely not a worthy index of how God sees us.
  20. 20. GOD’S P.O.V.“Do not consider his appearance or his height,for I have rejected him. The Lord does not lookat the things man looks at. Man looks at theoutward appearance, but the Lord looks at theheart.”--I Samuel 16:7
  21. 21. What Is Jesus Trying To Tell Us In This ‘Table-turning’ Story? Love each other --I Corinthians 13 Love enemies --Matthew 5:43-48 Serve those in need --Matthew 25:31-46 (Take note of verse 45 and 46!) Put feet and hands on our words!
  22. 22. My Commitment Ill say yes, Lord, yes To your will and to your way Ill say yes, Lord, yes I will trust you and obey When your Spirit speaks to me With my whole heart Ill agree And my answer will be yes, Lord, yes
  23. 23. Confession I believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of the living God. I trust him as my Lord and Savior.
